Augmented Reality Technology Improvements

Being able to link the Internet with the real world is going to transform the way we go about our daily lives. No matter where you are right now, if you look around you there is a sea of information about your location that you can’t visualize. Augmented reality is a promising technology that lets you overlay information over images of reality in realtime. So far you need something like a smartphone or iPad to do it, but in 5-10 years you will be able to use glasses with displays built into them.

The way this fits into education, is when a child looks at something and asks “what’s that?” they will be able to get an answer.

This new video shows how the newest technologies can recognize objects without special targets. It’s not there yet, but you can see the potential.
